Year 5 trip to Chelmsford Water Treatment Centre

Year 5 had a brilliant time at the water recycling centre before half term. We made our own 'sewage soup', so that the children were able to see all of the waste which goes into our water. We then walked all around the centre, exploring the various parts of the recycling process. The children (and adults!) learnt lots of information! At the end of the trip, year 5 learnt about some of the bacteria that lives in water and we even got to look through a microscope to see some live bacteria from some untreated water!
